There are a ton different ways to take care of your face depending on your environment, genetic factors and etc. There are a few basic tips you should follow to ensure you’re making the most of your face care regimen.
1. Make sure your “tools” are clean.
Always start by washing your hands. Even with cleanser, if your hands aren’t clean, you could be rubbing more dirt and grime into your pores. Additionally, you should always dry your face with a clean towel, to avoid transferring any dirt or bacteria onto your freshly immaculate skin.
2. Use a cleanser designed for your skin type.
There are many types of different facial cleansers available, so you really want to make sure you are getting one intended for your skin type. If you use a product that doesn’t suit your skin, you’ll always be playing catch-up. To add a little extra oomph in your cleansing routine, try the Clairsonic Skin Care Brush, which delivers powerful cleansing and gentle exfoliation in one soothing massage experience.
3. Use a moisturizer designed for your skin type.
All skin requires replenishment, but different skin types demand specific types of moisturizers to keep healthy. If you have oily or combination skin, you will want to look for a product with light moisture that won’t clog pores. Something like Patyka’s Absolis Tea Tree Combination Skin Face Crème would suit you well. If you have dry skin, you’ll want to use extra moisturizing products, or consider moisture serums, like those made by Patyka and John Masters Organics. The Pomegranate Facial Nourishing Oil by John Masters Organics can be used on its own or it can be added to any moisturizer for extra nourishment.
4. Exfoliate at least once per month.
Unless you are using a regular exfoliation system like the Clairsonic Skin Care Brush, you should exfoliate about once a week, depending on your skin. Exfoliation removes dead skin cells and reveals a healthier appearance. Products that work double duty, such as the Biokaliftin Radiant Exfoliating Mask by Patyka, help exfoliate dead skin cells while also replenishing healthy cells.
5. Supplement with Other Extras: Night Creams, Eye Creams, & Serums.
You may want to supplement your daily skincare routine with products designed especially for your skin’s needs. For example, Patyka’s Biokaliftin Repair Night Elixir and John Masters Organics Vitamin C Anti-Aging Face Serum are excellent products to use for an extra dose of care.
They say that until 25, you can blame your mother for your skin problems, but that after the age of 25, you only have yourself to blame because your hygiene habits are usually the main culprit in skin products. Protect your skin and enjoy a radiant countenance into your golden years–practice the face care tips mentioned above.
